Guys, I'm planning to rent a 8 seater in Chennai. Renters like Avis or Carzonrent only have 7 seater vehicles. I suppose I could get from getz or annai cars (I've had rented form them earlier), however, I'm not sure of their policy in case of any accidents since they use private board(white). Can someone advice?


P.S. the trip is a return travel to Goa.
Thanks

Question Re: Feedback on different Self Drive rental agencies

I could not find any option to pay the Other state entry tax online. Is there any way Carzonrent or Zoom can pay the tax in advance, so we do not have to stop at the RTO checkpost and waste time in a queue of trucks and cabs.

This year i took a chance and booked a self-driven Ertiga for Travel to Himachal from Carzonrent.

It came as a surprise that the whole thing went off without a hitch. Though the initial take over of the car took sometime (which nearly offset timings), but rest all was like a breeze.

A few points

Make sure u carry all the documents before you take a handover.
Make sure you carefully inspect the vehicle before taking the delivery. (we had to wait for 30 mins to get the RC of the Car)
Take a photocopy of all the papers they make you fill up.
Make sure you know the road tax for taxi's for the state you are going to. (entry to harayana was about 2100 for that particular vehicle which you would need to spend).

Guys, I need some info. Any Automatic transmission self driven car is available in Bangalore for say a fortnight or two? Compact car like santro/i10 etc preferred (I don't know which compact cars come with Automatic transmission)
What is the rental rate with the rental cos? Which are the best / reputed car rentals that I can speak to?
Alternatively If some fellow TBhpian with a compact car (Auto transmission) is willing to offer the car for a fortnight or more, I will be more than willing to take it.
Tnx. Ashok

Hi Ashok,

IMHO Zoomcar.in is the best self driven car rental in Bangalore. They offer two Automatic Hatchbacks namely Mahindra Reva E2O - Rs. 54/hour or 540/day and Mercedes-Benz A-Class - Rs. 390/hr or 3900/day(if price is not a concern), if you are not so particular about Automatics then they have Ford Figo - Rs. 150/hr or 1500/day. Hourly trip includes 25kms and Daily trip includes 225 kms.

Have a look at this thread discussion on them Link.
They offer the best and hassle free service.

Hope it helps!!
Regards.

Zoomcar is the best.They dont have any automatics in the budget/economy section,you would have to opt for the high end cars for automatic options.

Hi Guys...any suggestions for a good recommended self drive car agency in Cochin.. Visiting with family later this year...Zoom/ Carz on rent etc don't provide service there. I would be landing in Kochi Airport & would be there in Kerala for around 8-9 days. Anyone who had any personal experience ?
Or would it be best to hire a car with a driver ? What kind of rental costs are we looking at for a Dzire/ Indigo / Verito type sedan ?

Kochi or for that matter whole of Kerala does not have any licensed self drive operators.There are private owners renting out their cars to known people etc but all that is a big hassle plus no protection in case of any eventuality.

My suggestion would be to hire a normal cab from the airport or get in touch with the upteen tours and travels guys and hire a car from them.The Indigo kind of cars are now at INR 10-12rs a km and the cab would charge you for to and fro distance.If its a sight seeing trip,then I would suggest that you retain the same car for the entire duration of the trip as that would work out economical and plus saves you the hassle of hiring separately at each location.You could get in touch with Eldose whose services I have used and have referred to a couple more of people.You could get in touch with him on 09447523493.Language could be an issue in the state as everyone understands Hindi and English but conversing back is a little tricky.

Default Re: Feedback on different Self Drive rental agencies

Hi everyone,
I am looking to rent a seven to eight seater for 2 weeks. I have narrowed down on the Ertiga and Innova. We will be 5 adults and one toddler of 2 years, who will be having her own toddler car seat. We plan to travel out of station for nearly 5 days (Delhi to Punjab), thus we'd be needing good amount of luggage space for the a stroller, knocked down crib, bags, etc., keeping that in mind, the Ertiga doesn't seem like a wise choice even though it has a better mileage.

Which one would be a better car to go for? Ertiga or the Innova?

I am thinking of booking via Carzonrent and getting a toddler seat from them too. Though I have a few questions -

1. Are there any worthy competitors in self drive industry worth looking at?
2. I will need to make a blocked security deposit of Rs.50,000/- on my CC. Do they only accept credit cards? As my credit card has a limit of Rs.25,000/- only. Though I can arrange a cash deposit.
3. Can I request for a newer model of the car?
4. Do they have a luggage carrier on the roof of the car?

Thanks in advance!

Other than their per day charges-nothing else.Zoom is your best bet.

There's a new service in the NCR region by the name of MiCar! Check em out http://www.micar.co.in/

Currently they have Polo, Vento and Nissan Terrano on offer. But the per day rental and security deposit is way lower than Carzonrent. I am getting Terrano for 1,700/day rent with a 10,000 security deposit for a period of 14 days. I think it's an excellent deal. It's best to call their customer care # and get a quote since I got a Terrano quote 200 Rs. less than what's quoted on their website.
